Budget Boost?

Just added a 2" Budget Boost to my 04X it currently has 31" X 10.50 tires and stock shocks. I do not expect a great ride; I bought a Jeep; but the rear is very rough now. Speed bumps are the worst. Do I need shock relocators on the rear or just new shocks and shock relocators. Was thinking of getting some RE shocks when the money is there.

If you got stock shocks with that BB you may not want to do any good wheelin until you get new ones cause you will extend them stock shocks completely. No relocators needed. Those BB will ride a little rougher than just replacing the coils. When you get some shocks grab Nitros not Hydros you might get a little more comfortable ride.

Nitros give a more comfortable ride? Whaaaat? Everything I've heard is that nitros give a much stiffer/rougher ride....

That's what I had heard. It's the hydros that give you a softer ride.

I said you might get a more comfortable ride. Doesn't anyone read? I did say the coils would be a better ride than the BB spacers.

You may want to think about Rancho 9000 series adjustable shocks rather than RE monotubes. Rancho has a $100 rebate going on until August 31st and you can pick them up for $80 at my4by.com. So 4 shocks will run you $220 before shipping with a lifetime warranty on the shocks. I am in the same boat as you except I am planning a trip to Moab in the next couple weeks before it gets too hot down there.

I just ordered 4 hydros from 4wd.com. Free shipping & $35 rebate. Also had a $10 coupon. Ended up paying $98.96 for them
